Highlander Sponsor Scottish UFC Fighter Robert “The Hammer” Whiteford

Scottish bivvy bag manufacturer Highlander, the same company behind the popular Highlander Hawk Bivvy Bag, have announced a new sponsorship deal with Robert “The Hammer” Whiteford, the first Scot to compete in the UFC.

Robert, who comes from Armadale, West Lothian, has been in the UFC since October 2013, and currently competes in the Featherweight division, where he has so far won 2 of his 4 fights – one by decision against Daniel Pineda, and the other by KO against Paul Redmond.

The company decided to support Robert due to their Scottish roots, taking pride in supporting and celebrating the achievements of fellow Scots, and says that it will be looking to sponsor other Scottish athletes in the future.
